Babies exude a sense of hope. Not that they are to be burdened with the pressure of changing the world, but simply reminding us that it is enough just to be. Babies don’t accomplish or do, they just be – and for that they are truly loved.

LOCATION FAVORITES
Baby blessings held at home with family is the most popular venue to celebrate and bless your newborn.

Springtime Blessing in April:

In the backyard at their parents’ beautiful peaceful home in Ramona.

At the beginning of the ceremony, just as we took a moment to think of those not with us, and honor those who have passed – a hummingbird flitted by. Little hello from spirit 🙂

A super sweet message from these wonderful new parents after their daughter’s baby blessing:

“We loved Lucia’s ceremony, and your presentation and support were perfect. Thank you again for joining us on this special day! . . . I think many parents would benefit from your blessing ceremony guidance, preparation, and administration! 🙂 “

Summertime Blessing in August:

The blessing for little Bradford took place in a family home in Chula Vista. The property was beautifully landscaped with love and attention, and this alcove the perfect spot for friends and family to gather around for the baby blessing.

Even better, much of the brickwork on the pathways, tile work on the walls, and in particular, the tile work housing this beautiful statuary- all handplaced by Brandon Grant (who happens to be a previous baby blessing client!)

Divine Water
Why do I use water for a baby blessing? Obviously it is an age-old tradition that churches have used water in baptisms, whether via a baptismal font for babies, or submersion in the river for adults.

Because I am a nondenominational minister and officiant and not associated with any particular religion, I focus on the purity of water, and its ability to conduct energy – especially the energy of love.

For instance, if you have ever heard of or read about Masaru Emoto and his work with water crystals, you can see the power of emotion on water.

For every baby blessing ceremony, I pour filtered water into a small glass jar, then I hold the jar as I meditate and pray for the baby and family. I believe the water is conducting my positive emotions and alignment for the baby’s wellbeing.

This is the water I then use- with a few droplets – to bless the baby.

When I tell people I perform baby blessings, often a smile appears, followed by slight confusion around the eyes.

My sister asked, “Like in the Lion King?”
Well, definitely with the enthusiasm and sense of community, but without quite so much drama, and there is no dangling of babiesThe-Lion-King-the-lion-king-13191392-800-600 over a cliff.

So, I continue describing, “it’s taking a moment to honor this new little life in your life. To focus on your intentions for parenting this child, the promises and commitments you are making to your little one. Even asking for support from your friends and family.”

But beyond promises, intentions, and support of community, it’s a moment to invite the Divine into your baby’s life and purpose while they play on Earth, whatever that means to you.

You can make the Baby Blessing ceremony a big occasion and invite all of your extended family, friends, and people in your community.

Or it can be an intimate ceremony, just the two of you and your child.

Whatever you create, it’s a time to focus on honoring the Sacred Experience of bringing this child into the world and promising to do your best to help the child be their best.
